What's New in Version 2.2
Quick actions via 3D Touch on icon
Many other minor fixes
Clumsy and nearly unusable
Tried it with iOS 9.1 on iPhone 6S Plus
Briefly: don't buy it if you want anything more than copy-paste between cloud drives (iCloud not among them!)
Giving 2 stars, not 1, because this masterpiece worked with OneDrive in a predictable way (and in hope it works with other 3d-party cloud storage no worse).
The rest is terrible:
WiFi Connect does nothing useful. Yep, it opens http://<your ip> (port 80) Nothing there, and it's probably good - no option to run https server, no options for at least a password protection of the web interface.
Doesn't show iCloud's top level directory from iCloud link, only it's own folder (which is in turn invisible from iCloud's web interface, but visible from the standard app). However, all the iCloud is visible for the file viewer. Complete interface confusion between Local files and iCloud. C'mon, it is supposed to be primary external storage for Apple devices!
The setting "Set touch ID" does no more, then WiFi connect. May be, also for the better.
No visible integration with a standard Mail app.
Sorry, I don't want to dig this heap deeper to find more things that don't work as expected or require some not very obvious movements from my side to become usable. I'm not your QA team neither the interface design advisor, I was supposed to be your customer. Waste of money.
What does it really do?
I spent several minutes reviewing the app store search results for an app that would let me unzip image files and let me see and use them on my iPad Pro. What ultimately got me clicking this one was the GmbH at the end of the company name. I tend to generally trust German engineering.
Unfortunately, I should have been more discriminate. It's German *engineering* that is the pride of the fatherland. Not interface design or UX. (This is why Mercedes & other German companies send small teams to Silicon Valley cowork spaces, but that is a conversation for other media.)
This interface is clumsy. I don't know what I'm doing. Following tutorial's directions I went to the URL from the app's browser to download my intended .zip file. And nothing happened.
Now, I don't know if I am supposed to do something else, but I can't intuit *what* I am supposed to do next.
I would really like this app to work, because i already paid the $5 entry fee, and many of the other entries in the "zip files" searchspace look like downright scam artists. If this firm went through the ordeal to register a company to make apps, that means they're serious!
And, if they are serious, they should hold themselves accountable, listen to customer feedback, and make a dependable app to solve consumer problems.
But at the moment, just move on.
What a rip off
File Manager Pro is ... Nothing like is described in the app description. It indicates that it connects to iCloud and yet there is no (at least intuitive) way to connect to my iCloud files. It does so on the file picker but you can't do anything with them. If that is the case then what is the purpose of having a file manager that you can't do anything with. When trying to use the add connection, it doesn't list iCloud, only Cloud Drive (MSFT). I bought this because I work mainly off my iPad and therefore rely a lot on my iCloud account but iCloud doesn't really have a manager so I thought this app was going to help me manage my files on the iCloud but in reality it just doesn't do anything, nothing at all of what you say it does. I'm really disappointed. To top things off, you indicate a support website that basically is just a promotional website with absolutely NO support. What a rip off!!!
